Thinking it Over

Raku Fired Ceramic Wall Hanging


approx 7w x 8h inches

Copper Penny and Golden Luster glaze over a Laguna Blend clay body.




The prepared slab with rocks arranged underneath, ready for drawing"Thinking it Over" is one of  a series of Raku fired wall hangings created in 2005.  Each work begins as a slab of clay, which is then draped over an arrangement of stones to create an irregular undulating surface.  The modified slab serves as a blank canvas for gesture drawing from a live model.  As the clay dries the drawing is refined and sculpted in low relief.  The final work is bisque fired and then raku fired in a 55 gallon drum kiln.
